This Kid Was Totally Brutal At The London Marathon And It’s Hilarious1 month, 3 days ago
Most of us have nothing but respect for the people who manage to run a marathon. I mean, I’m not sure I could even walk 26 miles, never mind run themand look happy aboutit too.
This little rebel however, saw his chance to wreak havoc – and he grasped it with both hands. Well, technically just one hand. And there was definitely no grasping going on.
Definitely the most uninspiring spectator ever, he was called a ‘little sh*t’ by the person recording the video as he offers a hand out to runners for a high five but then retracts it and leaves them hanging. A move that brings back vivid memories from our days at primary school.
Hey, you snooze you lose, guys.
It’s the one guy who goes out of his way to come and get a high five, before getting rejected, that really makes your heart ache…

Tulane frat builds pro-Trump wall, receives backlash from students1 month, 14 days ago
Donald Trump said he wanted a wall and now he’s got one.
The Kappa Alpha Order at Tulane University upheld an annual tradition of building a sandbag wall around its fraternity home. But this year students added a political touch by tagging the wall with Make America Great Again and Trump in huge, spray-painted letters.
A photo circulating Facebook and Redditshows typical college dudes in typical frat garb( i.e. shirtless, ball caps, etc .) posing in front of their house to show off something that surely their pledges should take the real credit for.
In a statement emailed to the Daily Dot, a Tulane spokesperson was of the view that the Trump tie-in was intended to satirize his campaign slogan 😛 TAGEND
Every spring the Kappa Alpha( KA) fraternity erects a wall around its chapter home, which is on private property. The the leading role of KA’s local chapter says that adding Donald Trump’s name and slogan to this year’s wall was done in order to satirize the candidate’s campaign promise , not to present support for him. The wall has all along dismantled .
But the student body was apparently not in on the joke.
Campus Latino communities in particular instantly took to social media to express their annoyance. Tulane Jewish surveys student Dillon Prez posted this message out to his peers and groups on Facebook and included photographs of the brotherhood home 😛 TAGEND
…hey built a wall fitted with connotations of loathe and ignorance, immediately mocking the experiences of Latino immigrants and workers throughout our nation. By writing “TRUMP” in big, red letters across their wall, KA changed what was a tradition of constructing a wall into a tradition of constructing a border, symbolizing separation and xenophobia. This issue not only affects Latinos but all other marginalized immigrant groups in this country .
The wall had stood since Thursday, having been consecutively built and taken down.
Kappa Alpha does this tradition every year to guard the Confederate flag that the chapter is not allowed to display in public. But the brothers have never used it to make a direct political statement.
Concerned students began reaching out to Prez as the student leader of Making Excellence Now and Tomorrow in Education( GENTE ,) a group dedicated to building campus more welcoming for “Latinos, Hispanics, and Iberian descendants.”
“This is the first time anything has been written on this wall targeting students. Understanding the ramifications, it stimulates us feel entirely unwelcome and unsafe on this campus, ” Prez told the Daily Dot.
Shortly after the wall was erected, a videosince removed by the userbegan circulating indicating a group of young men, allegedly Tulane football players, taking the wall down. Prez said this is how some students have been responding to the statement.
After GENTE’s meeting Monday night, students took to Facebook to uncover the the wall, hoping it would go viral to raise awareness about the many race-related issues students work against at Tulane. Just two weeks ago, GENTE met with Kappa Alpha to address the racial implications behind its annual Old South event, where the chapter commemorates Robert E. Lee, among other Confederate traditions.
“We want answers to why those havent been addressed and create a better dialogue and create the positive developments, ” Prez said. “Millions “of migrants ” built this city, built this campus, and rebuilt the walls of the streets where put up this wall and are still not going anywhere.”
Kappa Alpha did not respond to a request for comment.
This Guy Live Tweeted His Attempt To Get A Free Dessert, And It’s Hilarious1 month, 16 days ago
Until today, we’d have thought that the best way to get a free dessert at a restaurant – well – would be to pretend that it’s your birthday.
Yes, you might have to endure the whole place singing “Happy Birthday” to you, but then you just blow out a few candles and wham, bam, thank you mam – a free ice-cream sundae.
Well, when Twitter user Elan Gale suggested a better way to get free pudding, one Kyle Baldinger decided that he’d try it out…
How A Meme Became A Currency And Paid For The Jamaican Bobsleigh Team2 months, 16 days ago
You all know bitcoin, presumably. That internet currency that was big a while back and now isnt as big but is still quite big thats really the only way to describe it. Its secure, untraceable and drugtraffickers100% love it.
Well theres another online currency thats been growing from strength to strength recently that you might not have heard about. Dogecoin
To tell you about this, were going to have to go into its history. And we mean right to the beginning.
So we all know Doge. The jovial, yet slightly confused, shiba inu that took the internet by storm a couple of years back But who is Doge?
In October 2010, someone posted a picture of a corgi onto reddit with the caption LMBO LOOK AT THIS F*****N DOGE. That was the conception on the word. From then, people all over the web were posting pictures of dogs and calling them DOGES.
Meanwhile, a Japanese school teacher had a blog where she shared pictures of her shiba inu, Kabosu, which, for the most part, everyone ignored.
Until July 2013, when Shiba Inus had taken over the doge scene and someone dug up that famous picture of Kabosu and used it for their meme. So Kabosu become the face of doge.
So thats enough history on a meme. Now to the currency.
In December that year, a member of a Bitcoin forum, named Dogecoin, introduced his new e-currency, based on the meme, as a satirical take on Bitcoin.
No one took it seriously, obviously. Its money based on a funny picture of a dog, afterall. That is until there was a crowdfunding opportunity that the whole community jumped on. The Jamaican bobsleigh team looked set to qualify for the 2014 Socchi Winter Olympics but they couldnt afford all of the other stuff.
They need $40,000 for equipment and travel. 27,000,000 dogecoins were raised over 2-3 days (over $30,000) so the team could go.
Its like Cool Runnings without the inspirational montages and witty tte–ttes.
They also raised $7000 in a few hours to send an Indian Shiva K.P. Keshavan to the same Olympics to compete in the luge as his country couldnt afford it anymore.
Doge coin used to be dependant on bitcoin as you used to needed to buy doge through converting it from bitcoin. Now you can use actual real money and everything!
Its now the fifth biggest online currency and its growth is absolutely huge.
From something that started 100% as a joke, it’s pretty cool that they’ve managed to make a difference like they have. I mean it makes me feel totally useless but whatever…
10 Cloverfield Lane Will Have You Writhing The Whole Way Through3 months, 11 days ago
10 Cloverfield Lane is a freshening change from that somewhat saturating tradition. It wasnt until January, merely two months prior to the opening of the films release, that we were even made aware that it existed.
Its not really a sequel to the alien attack movie Cloverfield, but more like a distant, less showy relative, with both having spawned from JJ Abrams production company Bad Robot. Whereas Cloverfield showed us the Statue of Libertys head crashing into the street as a whole city disintegrated, 10 Cloverfield Lane barely leaves the underground bunker in which most of the film is set.
Being less showy doesnt mean its any less entertaining, though. The movie will have you either writhe or jumping out of your seat from before the opening credits are over, right up until the very end. It’s director Dan Trachtenberg’s first feature length cinema, but he pulls ofthis spiraling thriller as though he’s done it a thousand times before.
The film starts out with Michelle( Mary Elizabeth Winstead) dismissing bellows from her fianc as she drives in her car. After being run off the road she wakes up in an empty room where she soon gratifies her captor or saviour Howard( John Goodman) who tells her that the world outside is a nuclear desert, and that they must live underground for at the least a year to remain safe. We live Michelles dread with her, questioning the legitimacy of Howards claims and motivations as she slowly tries to decipher exactly what “the hells going on”. Is Howard right? Does leaving the bunker entail certain demise? Or is something more sinister happening?
The third character in the mix is the jovial Emmett( John Gallagher Jr ), a local worker who has known Howard for some time. Emmett provides the only glimpses of light relief from the incredibly weird and intense Howard.
John Goodman plays Howard brilliantly, his huge frame and sketchy stance combining well to intimidate the whole way through. Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr are equally as good, and its the three of them that elevate this film from a tight script and well thought out idea to something that really get under your skin.
The less you know before ensure it, the more you will enjoy the film, so we wont be revealing any spoilers here. What we will say is that if your heart rate and stress levels don’t go up during the course of its movie then you really are made of stone.
10 Cloverfield Lane is out in cinemas this Friday .
Hundreds Of Loved Up Irish Fans Serenade A Beautiful French Girl4 months, 8 days ago
That’s what happened in Bordeaux when, after a 3-0 loss to Belgium, Ireland fans, still in high spirits, spotted a lovely blonde French girl and took it upon themselves to serenade her.
If ever you’ve wanted to see a video that compounds Irish stereotypes, this is it. Never have you heard so much slurred singing and the mumbled, incorrect terms of two ballads that are pretty easy to recollect … funny though.
One guy managed to sneak a cheeky kiss at the end; albeit one on the cheek but, you know … she’s hot so it all counts.
Odds on that he thought there’d be some sort of Richard Curtis style holiday romance after that, though … Seems like Ireland are pretty much out of the Euros so he requires something to cheer him up!

Vogue Brazil’s Paralympics Photoshoot Is Unbelievably Offensive5 months, 13 days ago
People such as Tanni Grey-Thompson, who has won 16 Paralympic medals, show their fans across the globe that you can combat against adversity and still be a win, still be proud of yourself.
That’s why Vogue Brazil’s decision touse able bodied performers in their campaignis so disappointing. Instead of featuring Paralympic athletes, they chose to photoshop Cleo Pires and Paulo Vilhena, actors and Paralympic ambassadors, to appear as though they havedisabilities. It went with the caption “we are all Paralympians.”
The campaign is aimed to tie in with the upcoming Paralympics in Rio and increase ticket sales. The shoot wasactually based on two Paralympians, Bruna Alexandre and Renato Leite, but for some bizarre reason the athletes were not featured on the main pages.
Pessoal, Venho esclarecer que estou super orgulhosa de fazer parte desta campanha que a revista #Vogue comeou a divulgar as primeiras imagens desse lindo trabalho. Nossos Embaixadores Paralmpicos Cleo Pires e Paulo Vilhena , nos ajudaram a intensificar e a propagar a campanha com intuito de gerar visibilidade ao Movimento Paralmpico e convocar a torcida brasileira para marcar presena nos Jogos Paralmpicos Rio 2016. Gostaria, de enfatizar que #SomosTodosIguais e por isso a Cleo Pires me representa. Nos prximos dias, vocs tero acesso completo da campanha. #VemComAGenteBrasil e espero contar com toda a torcida brasileira nas arenas assim torcendo, vibrando, cantando e comemorando conosco! #CarregoNoPeito o #CoraoParalmpico. @cleopires_oficial @vilhenap @ocpboficial

Criticism has been widespread . Vogue Brazil have distanced themselves from the campaign, saying that the idea came from Pires.Speaking to HuffPostUK, they said 😛 TAGEND
“Vogue respects the opinions of readers who disagreed with the campaign format, but reiterates its commitment to promote the importance of Paralympic games. We will continue to support all of the Paralympic committee initiatives that can increase the number of attendees at the Paralympic games.”
Why not just feature the real people that inspired the campaign?
